Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is one of the more prevalent and serious morbidities in hospitalized patients and is associated with a multitude of acute and chronic conditions. The economic and public health burden of AKI is significant with substantially increased mortality, morbidity, length of ICU stay and in-hospital costs.
